From London to Leeds

The British Trades Union Congress (TUC) has invited me to do a series of short talks to trade union reps around the country on the subject of online campaigning.  Naturally, the talk focusses on LabourStart and encourages the reps to get active with our ActNOW system.

Last Saturday I spoke in London to around 100 reps, yesterday in Leeds to around 30 and on Monday I’ll be in Manchester doing it again.  I begin with a show of hands — how many people have heard of LabourStart and seen the website.  In London, the vast majority were familiar with it. In Leeds, a minority.  I’m not sure why this is the case, but it demonstrates the importance of actually meeting people face to face and telling them about the site and the campaigns.
